I did what you asked and rebooted.
The driver manager say the same as before: That the proprietary drivers are in use.
gives the following output though.
Code: Select all
System: Host: Cecilia Kernel: 5.4.0-65-generic x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.14.2 Distro: Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa
Graphics: Device-1: NVIDIA C77 [GeForce 8200] driver: nouveau v: kernel
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.9 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 1600x900~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: N/A v: N/A
That seems to say that nouveau is still in use.
The output for
lspci -nnk | grep -EA3 "3D|VGA"; echo +; ls /lib/modprobe.d/; echo +; dpkg -l | grep nvidia; echo +; mokutil --sb-state
seems to be the same but I'll post it anyway
Code: Select all

Has anything changed? I just tried running a program the needs OpenGL and it still crashes.
Thank you for your help. Most forums I've used take at least a day to get answered and I appreciate the speed!
PS: I failed to mention that OpenGL did work while I was using the nouveau drivers. Which would seem to indicate that it is running the NVIDIA driver.
PPS: I also failed to tell you that this card (NVIDIA GeFource 8200) is a IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor) don't know if that wil help, but there it is.
